In any level of football, the quarterback is the most important position. If you don’t have a good quarterback, teams can expect to not go to far into the postseason especially in the second year of the College Football Playoff. Some teams are good enough to cover up this weakness with a great running game, most teams can’t hide a weak passing game.

In the Pac-12 Conference it is no different, as the Pac-12 is deep with great quarterbacks every year. Although the season is only two weeks old, several are already making heads turn in the Conference of Champions. The leaders going into the season appeared to be USC’s Cody Kessler and Oregon’s Vernon Adams, but Adams is playing hurt with a broken index finger suffered against Eastern Washington. Time will tell how his season will play out, especially if he remains the Ducks Starter.

Here is our breakdown of the Quarterbacks in the Pac-12.
